Four* Heavenly Bodies And a Windmill

image by Tamas Ladanyi

Nice conjunction of crescent Moon (2,2 days old), Jupiter and Mercury on December 29, 2008. Mercury can be seen just a few arcminutes above the horizon in a very clear atmosphere. The location is the area of famous windmill named "Helt" that can be found near the village of Tes in Hungary. The windmill was built in 1840.
